The most Christmassy cocktail

There are a few drinks that just scream Great British Christmas, and chief among them are sloe gin and anything  mulled. So when we asked our pals at Sipsmith for simple Christmas cocktail recipe to impress your guests over the festive season, they well and truly outdid themselves with their Mulled Sloe Gin - possibly the ULTIMATE winter warmer... And the best bit? You can get it all prepped and ready to ladle out as soon as your guests arrive!
